This week’s worship experience premieres on Sunday, February 28 at 10 am. Join Pastor Flor as she looks at how being outside is a gift, especially as we grow out of winter into spring. The outdoors can be a reminder of so much — not only God’s covenant and promises, but of how God’s creation surrounds people at all times. As we reflect on the prophecy of Isaiah, we’ll be reminded of how even a simple tree can tell the story of God’s presence. We’ll consider what it means to be in nature and how we might look for God to show up in the ordinary of the outdoors. The scripture for this week is Isaiah 55:1-13. This service is available here on the website, through the Herndon UMC YouTube channel, and on Herndon UMC’s Facebook page.
As you prepare, in addition to a candle, gather together something that reminds you of nature, and place it in your worship space. You are encouraged to add your voice to prayers and songs and stand as you are able. There is a bulletin to help you experience worship. It includes the week’s announcements, links, ongoing prayer concerns, and the order of worship. If you received a Lent kit, get your “small stick” of balsam incense ready for worship too. If you did not receive a kit, but would like one, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to share one with you!
The chat on YouTube opens at 9:30 am. Say hello to the greeters as you prepare for worship. No matter what platform you prefer. Please let us know you are worshiping with us, who is there worshiping with you, and where you are. This can be done in the chat and comments, or by email to email@example.com. Anyone new or looking to get more connected or learn more about Herndon UMC is invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete this online form. We would love to hear from you!
